Wage Tax refund forms only for 2020

The coronavirus pandemic has caused unprecedented disruption to businesses and employees. In response, the Department of Revenue has created special Wage Tax refund forms for Tax Year 2020. These include:

  • A form that businesses can use to request a refund on behalf of a group of their non-resident employees. Please download the form and the instructions for calculating refund amounts below. We only accept our own Employer-requested forms that are submitted through our eFile/ePay website. We are unable to capture information from other forms.
  • An online COVID EZ refund form. This is for an individual, non-resident employee who was ordered to work outside Philadelphia during the pandemic.
  • An online income-based refund form. This is for individuals who qualified for Pennsylvania tax forgiveness, and want to request a Philadelphia refund. This video has step-by-step instructions to help you complete the online form.

You will receive an email 2-3 business days after submitting your online form, confirming we received it.

Paper versions of the COVID EZ form, and a new simplified income-based form, are also available below.
